Also one of the larger beaches in Floripa, of my favourite ones... Nice sand, clear water (but cold), noisy and big waves i like so much. I think it´s dangerous for little children, but it is great for relaxing, sunbathing, couples, adventurers, gay people.

Praia do Campeche is located in Campeche town and is a nice little bustling beach to visit for the day. A couple of restaurants overlook the beach from the main entrance and the beach itself was busy when we visited but there was plenty of room as it's quite large. Medium waves and refreshing cool water. We had a nice... More

What you can do there: Surf, bodyboard, wind & kitesurf, volleyball, run, walk, cycle, swimming. Good if you are looking for a busy beaches with options for food, drinks and music as well as if you like to enjoy a good book at a wild beach. Marathon & surf competitions. Boats from there to Campeche´s island. Beautiful sunrise & moonrise.

I can only imagine how does this place look like on a sunny day! We were there 2 days in a row hoping to have at least better visibility if not a couple of sun rays. Unfortunately - nothing! The only solution is to come back choosing better period of the year which we will do. For the moment I... More

I visited here in September, when the beach was sparsely populated and the weather supreme (70s F and not a cloud in the sky). I had 2 days at Florianopolis; intended to spend one day at Campeche Beach and one exploring other parts of the island. Instead, I spent two days hanging out in the surf and wandering up and...

Great surfing spot. Beautiful and clean. White sand. The area next to the beach is protected so very few constructions next to the sea. In front of the beach is the Campeche island (reachable by boat) good snorkeling spot. Get to Campeche by bus from TIRIO bus terminal (bus162)

This beach is mostly attended by surfers, because it's always too windy and the water is colder than the north beaches. I would recon more to young and surfers than to families with children.
